FEMA extends flood insurance claim deadline
SHREVEPORT - The Federal Emergency Management Agency has extended its filing deadline for Louisiana policyholders impacted by recent Red River flooding.

Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon said in a news release the extension applies to Louisiana policyholders who submit claims related to flooding from May 16 to June 16.
